The 70th edition of the Auty Cup between USA and Canada takes place this week in Florida.

First contested in 1844 in New York, the Auty Cup is the world's first and longest running international sporting fixture.

The trophy was dedicated by Chicago-based K.A. Auty to commemorate the winner of the two-day match.

Annual play was halted due to financial reasons in 1995 but resumed after 16 years in 2011.

Canada is the reigning champions and has held the title since 1992.

Sixty-nine matches were played between 1844 and 2011 with the USA winning 32, Canada winning 26 and 11 drawn matches.

After the two-day Auty Cup match - played on Wednesday November 14 and Thursday November 15 - a 50-over fixture between the nations will take place on Friday November 16 followed by two Twenty20 clashes on Saturday November 17. All games will be staged at Central Broward County International Cricket Stadium in Lauderhill.
